eGenix has long been running a local user group meeting in Düsseldorf called Python Meeting Düsseldorf and we are using a Telegram group for most of our communication.
In the early days, the group worked well and we only had few spammers joining it, which we could well handle manually.
More recently, this has changed dramatically. We are seeing between 2-5 spam signups per day, often at night. Furthermore, the signups accounts are not always easy to spot as spammers, since they often come with profile images, descriptions, etc.
With the bot, we now have a more flexible way of dealing with the problem.
eGenix Antispam Bot for Telegram is open source licensed under the MIT license.
Please see the README file in the Github repository for documentation.
The bot can be downloaded from PyPI or cloned via the Github repository:
